Episode 47 - Butterfly Swords by Jeannie Lin

Happy lunar new year!  We rang in the Year of the Ox with Butterfly Swords , which was Jeannie Lin's first book.  It won the Golden Heart Award back in 2009 and started her illustrious career. Ai Li is to be married to the powerful and hawt Li Tao, a scheming jiedushi.  When she discovers his treachery and his murder of her brother she escapes to warn her father, the Tang Emperor.  Except her father isn't really all that fussed about it?  She's helped along the way by Ryam, Noted White Guy.  They travel all around China meeting people and running away from people and hitting people with swords, which is delightful. There's really no content to be concerned about in this book (it's a more recent book!) - if you dig action packed historical romances there won't be anything in here that's an unpleasant surprise.

We love you please give us money.

We love you so much - you're the most amazing fans and also the most attractive and you have the best taste in clothes!  Are those new shoes?  Did you do something to your hair?  We love your hair.

Oh in related news we really need money to pay for hosting and shitty romance novels and I mean it's not like we drink expensive wine but we're librarians okay it's not like we went to med school and Morganelli's needs to keep the lights on sooooo we made a Patreon.  Consider this our NPR Pledge Drive Season.

Come get cool stuff!  With just a dollar a month, you can get us to shout out to you anything you like!  We will wish a happy birthday!  We will propose to somebody (on your behalf, we are both already married)!  We will tell off your childhood birthday-party-crashing rival!  We don't even care!

If you pledge just five dollars a month we will send you a cool sticker that we will absolutely have designed by the time we need it!  It'll be a design we never sell anywhere else.  We'll also send you a handwritten thank you note because we were raised right.  And some business cards to hand out to your friends and relations.

If you give us twenty five dollars a month you get all that PLUS a tote bag!  Again, we'll come up with a design that'll a) be a surprise and b) will never be sold anywhere else.  Exclusive!  A club!  We love clubs!  Secret membership clubs!

If you give us fifty goddamned American dollars a month, we will let you pick a book for us to read.  We will do an entire episode on it.  We will suffer for our art.  (Plus you get all the rest of that stuff!)

Seriously, you guys are the best fans, and I'd say that even if I weren't begging for your hard earned money.  You don't have to give us a cent for us to love you.  But if you do want to support us, we've now got a way for you to do it.
